Rough rider build questions

I was looking to try something different , a build around the rough rider and have a few questions. I usually use a l.siren with a protection relic and with scorn - ruin caps. I do have a couple different banshee coms gathered up.

So my wonders are:
What skills to go for?
Whats a good relic?
Is there any weapons that work better with the movement speed? (harold, bitch, shotties)

level 72 op8

Well, as for skills, definitely think you should consider:
-Fleet (MS when your shield is depleted, it is always depleted so…always on MS? score)
-Sweet Release (Orbs restore % of missing health, so with a huge health pool that can potentially be a LOT)
-Restoration (% health increase on top of the add from the RR, more health!)
-Elated (% health regen with huge health pool is powerful)
-Sustenance (% of missing health, could be significant if you’re missing a lot of health, can stack it with SR and E)
-Life Tap (RR’s damage reduction makes this skill effectively 20% stronger, also can restore the entirety of your hitpoints to full because it’s all health, and no shields)

I would definitely consider a relic that increases max health such as Blood of the Ancients/Seraphs.

Since the RR gives 20% damage reduction, this effectively amplifies the effectiveness of Moxxi Weapon healing effects by 20%.

Recompense and Kinect Reflection are good skills to keep in mind.
Forget about the Banshee COM, it isnt worth just for Fleet.

Just put 5 points in it and use a better COM instead.
10/5 Fleet is almost uncontrollable anyway

A while back, I used a RR-build against the GOD-liath couple in the Wedding Day HH-pack. It was a lot of fun. Unfortunately, I don’t remember the exact build, so I’m just gonna point out the main skills and also the gear.

Fleet, KR, Converge, Ruin, Immolate. Then I used a Butcher, Grog and a Norfleet with a Blood of the Ancient relic (Health + Shotgun ammo + RL ammo). RR-shield, ofc, and a Breakneck Banshee COM to boost Fleet and Immolate.

Since the couple revive each other, you need to kill them both within a very short time. That’s why the Norfleet is important, along with Immolate. The rest is basically all about zipping all over the place, and laughing all the time. I wouldn’t recommend this setup for general mobbing, but for this fight… Hilarious! And very effective!

Thanks for the replies, sounds like load up on some health and maybe play with different coms. Wonder how a trickster would work.

I would try something like this
with the Legendary Binder and either a Vitality Relic or a Corrosive Bone of the Ancients. Maybe even a Longbow Slag Transfusion grenade just to be safe.

Just lower your sensitivity and it will be controllable.

I would go Cloudkill, cloudkill, a moxxii weapon/lifetap to heal off cloudkill, and maybe a point in cloudkill. If you’re setting yourself up to be vulnerable, may as well utilize one of her best skills. I disagree about the class mod, incidentally; you could easily drop points into Reaper, Mind’s Eye, Ruin, Chain Reaction, and Suspension for a very strong Siren who also happens to move at supersonic speeds. I tried that once, incidentally. It’s easy to die, but even easier to stay alive if you stay mobile, because you can almost outrun enemy bullets.

I forget my exact build, but I use one for farming. The extra speed of 11/5 is amazing! I echo the norfleet use, and switch to Leg Cat/BeeHawk as well. I think its this
Minus that point in inertia and put in res or sustenance I think. Im on my phone so can’t see

Rough Rider on Maya should automatically mean Breakneck Banshee + 5/5 Fleet = 11/5 Fleet. Why else would one even consider a Rough Rider? There are way better shields for that.

She who fights and runs away, can fight and run away another day!
